Rooms, castle and gardens were beautiful. The breakfast was delightful wilt filled menu and continental foods of pastries, cereals, and more. Lovely setting and warm friendly staff. We are glad we stayed. Shower was a bit tight with the shower curtain and our bathroom window only had a sheer.

This is a truly beautiful hotel in a stunning location. It’s a castle so don’t expect all the latest mod-cons. The Restaurant is very good and the food is really top notch. Be warned there is only a ferry to access the hotel, no bridge so don’t arrive too late

Lacking irish level of service and attention
The hotel and grounds lovely and nothing to complain about cleanliness or physical condition of facilities. Our 5th hotel on Ireland tour and this one all the service seemed "transactional". Checkin and out confusing, last dinner served 7:30, sommelier suggestion for beef course was "any of our red wines ". The island location accessible by ferry only is both romantic and isolating.

Lovely Stay in a Historic Castle!
We loved our stay at Waterford Castle! The staff was very welcoming and helped us with our luggage upon arrival. The rooms are very clean and come with loads of amenities. We certainly recommend this option to anyone staying near Waterford!

Great place
Great unique place on its own island. Staff are super efficient and friendly. Rooms are spacious, classic and well appointed. Hallways are tired but that’s the only thing negative.
